It says no trespassing, but I'm allergic to the rules.
—Edric, "Lost in Language"

Edric Blight is a recurring character in The Owl House. He is Amity's older brother, Emira's younger twin brother, and a student at Hexside School of Magic and Demonics. Though initially only part of the illusion track, as of "Labyrinth Runners", he is multi-enrolled in the illusion, potions, and beast keeping tracks.

Appearance

Body

Edric has a similar appearance to that of his sister, Emira, since they are twins. He has pale skin, pointed ears, golden eyes, thick black eyebrows, short, emerald green hair, and a mole under his right eye. In "Reaching Out", it is revealed that both Edric and Emira use a concealment stone to hide their true appearances. Without his concealment stone, Edric's overall appearance becomes more unkempt, having pulled-back hair, the thin beginnings of a mustache, and visible leg hairs.

Clothing

Edric wears the illusion track school uniform, which consists of a light blue shirt and pants covered by a gray tunic and a small darker gray cowl over it. He also sports gray boots. In "Labyrinth Runners", due to his enrollment in the illusion, potions and beast keeping tracks, his sleeves are now orange and yellow.

Out of school, he wears dark gray underclothes, black boots, a burgundy tunic with a belt around the waist, and gray boots with burgundy cuffs.

Without his teardrop-shaped concealment stone tucked into his sleeves, he wears a yellow t-shirt with a campfire on it, gray sweatpants, and brown flat shoes. He also wears a set of black-rimmed glasses.

Personality

Edric is an easy-going and friendly boy, but he has been shown to be quite a nasty prankster along with his twin sister, Emira. This is because he enjoys having fun. He is also quite rebellious, refusing to attend classes and preferring to skip them instead. He and Emira enjoy embarrassing their younger sister, Amity, due to her standoffish demeanor. However, despite this, he and Emira do seem to genuinely care about her, as Amity mentioned that they've been extra protective and nice towards her to make up for the "library incident". Ever since then, Edric and Emira have had a much better relationship with Amity, helping her rescue Luz and giving her advice when she talked about her crush on the latter.

Though initially antagonistic towards his younger sister, he seems to bear no ill will towards Luz for attempting to thwart his and Emira's plans to embarrass Amity. He even displays something of a fondness for her, winking at her when they first met. Compared to his sisters, Edric is very melodramatic, as he is quick to panic over adversity and danger. He is also prone to get emotionally attached, such as when he wanted to adopt a bat that he and Emira were planning to eat. This extends towards Emira to the point of dependency, as he despairs over the idea of parting with Emira forever (a sentiment that the more autonomous Emira does not share). Edric is also slightly dim-witted at times, often refusing to listen to Emira or making his own situations worse.

Edric is somewhat insecure. He's self concious about his appearance, relying on his concealment stone to hide his true appearance. He also feels like whenever he tries to help, he ends up ruining things instead. However, in Reaching Out, when he demonstrates how proficient he is at, not only Illusion magic, but Beast Keeping and Potions as well, Edric proves to be a very useful and powerful ally. This boosted his self esteem, and gave him the confidence to pursue multi-track.

Early life

Edric Blight was born to the Blight family as the second child. From a young age, Edric and Emira were witches of incredible talent and boasted a seemingly perfect reputation. However, the youngest Blight, Amity, knew that her older siblings had a penchant for trouble and often tattled on the two. At some point during their early teenage years, Edric and Emira scored high scores on Hexside's placement exam and were enrolled into the Illusion track.

Humiliating Amity

Both Edric and Emira make their debut appearance in the episode "Lost in Language." After witnessing Amity reject Luz's offer of friendship, the twins take the opportunity to humiliate their sister by calling her "Mittens" while delivering her lunch. The twins introduced themselves to Luz as Amity's "more fun" older siblings.

Relationships

Alador and Odalia Blight

Not much is known of Edric's relationship with his parents, other than his mother sending him and his sister to bring Amity her bag. Amity says their parents are less pressuring on the twins than they are with her. In "Reaching Out", Edric implies that his parents don't take him seriously, even being frustrated with Alador when he refuses to let Amity help him pin down Warden Wrath.

Emira Blight

Edric shares a good brother-sister relationship with Emira. However, while Edric greatest fear is loneliness, Emira's greatest fear is to be stuck with him forever; this could imply that Edric cares more about Emira than she cares about him. Regardless, Emira is still shown to care about Edric, often giving him advice and showing support for him when he pursued multi-track.

Amity Blight

Edric is Amity's older brother. Due to their contrasting personalities, Amity is often embarrassed, annoyed, or angered by her siblings' mischievous antics; she finds it unfair that her parents are less harsh on her siblings in comparison to herself. Amity would often lecture Emira and Edric and tell them to go away, even reporting them to the principal for being late to class. After their attempt at pranking their younger sister nearly killed her, Edric and Emira started treating Amity better, as seen in "Adventures in the Elements". Amity also cares about her brother and sister who assist her in learning a new spell, (while Edric sometimes pulls harmless pranks on Amity), and she rushes to save them from a beast that takes them away from her. Ever since, Edric and Emira have had a closer bond with their younger sister.

Unnamed partner

In the episode "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", he says that he has a date, however, he does not clarify as to whom it is. Emira uses the pronoun 'they' to refer to them.

Powers and abilities

    • Potion magic: As he is in the potions track at Hexside, Edric likely knows some degree of potion magic.
